Here lie the Maps

Nice. I will try and dig out some of my old map making stuff and assist if I can.

Map was updated to V2.

In this map, 10px = 1km (so far)

Map was updated to V3.

Since doing the map is intrinsically tied to making the history of the setting, would anyone like to help? Of course all history, culture, geography,... would have to be approved by Lorerunner.

Could you give us a possible draft of the map so far? I'm, also, willing to help with any lore, if necessary.

There is a link in the first post to a google disk folder with all that stuff already made.

Perhaps you should add some small atolls sitting out Southeast of Southport and East of Eastport? Keep in mind these atolls wouldn't be on the main hexagonal map because they are too large.

I added ones near Southport as an example. You can see it here:

to MegaZeroX: please, could you add some for the entire archipelago, painted in solid black (I can easier bring it to my map)?
Or use gimp and the masterfile that is in the folder and do the atols on separate transparent layer which you then send back.

Thanks!

Alright, here is a link with what you requested. I also added an archipelago outside of Eastport.

Thats great, but could you please do them for every part of the achipelago? I dont think only East and Southport would have some.

OK, sure! I'll get working on it.

Alright, if you check back in the folder I linked to, you should be able to find the map there. I added a few miscellaneous small islands in addition to the archipelagos.

Firstly; this map looks amazing.
Secondly; I'd appreciate it if you moved Aberisk further north, near to the mouth of the river, as I've been treating it as a coastal city heavily invested in fishing and the like. It'd just be nice to have it clearly on the coast in this map.
Also, are you planning to do maritime boundaries? Because if so, there are a couple agreements relating to that.

I'm not planing to do maritime boundaries, but you can do so, the source GIMP images are in the folder.

As for Aberisk, I put two coastal towns tightly connected to it, so the region as a whole is still dependant on maritime trade and fishing. I'll post map with other towns momentarilly.

EDIT: Map with smaller cities and towns

And I thought the last map looked good.

The town's are a fine solution, though one last comment; I had envisioned the large island north of Aberisk as having a town on it, but I can just imagine smaller scale settlement for now.

There is no real population if there isn't a point on the map. I did it so that there is a lot of space for internal expansion, se we don't have to conquer all the worldz to expand Smile
